Seduction

cuddle

Your tender eyes
Invite me
Like a path of rose petals
And a glass of wine

Your titanium frames
Seduce me
Like a concoction of
Molten dark chocolate
And wild strawberries

And
when you undress your eyes
And stitch your eyelids shut
I fade like a flower
Yearning
To be summoned
To Aurora’s throne
To restore
My quiescent circadian passion……….

To relinquish
To your lustful eyes
To surrender
To our own blissful realm

Of visual intercourse…
